Save the Sumatran rainforest: working with local communities

  • Duration: 14 minutes
  • Released: 2010

The RSPB, Burung Indonesia and BirdLife International are working together to protect and restore a precious area of rainforest in Sumatra.

This film looks at the ambitious initiatives underway at Harapan Rainforest to secure the habitat of critically endangered species and provide a healthy, natural environment that can sustain the economy for local communities.

Harapan Rainforest is supported by NABU (BirdLife in Germany) and co-financed by the Federal Republic of Germany within the framework of the International Climate Initiative of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through KfW Development Bank. The project is also supported by the UK Government Darwin Initiative, Conservation International’s Global Conservation Fund and the European Commission.
